Tokyo bluesEXTREME STREET PHOTOGRAPHY - VTokyo blues1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Are there places were street photography is impossible? Are there countries easier than others, or harder than others? How is it street shooting like in exotic places, or places you never visited, places that are completely different from what you are used to? I asked a few street photographers around the world to share with us their experiences.
This article was written for us by Lukasz Kazimierz aka :iconburningmonk:
Japan is a fascinating country with an unusual mix of the traditional and modern. It's a magical place filled with anime, cosplayers, samurai, sushi, and all the strangest things imaginable. Wrong! Well, not really, but this is just the cliché, outer covering. When newcomers just scratch the surface of this country, this cliché is all they find. But, in reality, Japan is a place like any other: full of human beings who have normal lives with all their little dr
Mako's Collection: The HiveHey everyone!Mako's Collection: The Hive2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I have officially unveiled my 3rd collaboration with the very talented Katizua. The Comic is called, "THE HIVE". And I have attached the video for it below. Be warned... it's a bit scary. And there is more than just a gender transformation going on. In the past - I used to make both gender and animal/creature transformations much more frequently than I have over the past decade. I wanted to get back to some of that horror like goodness... and was very happy to work with Katizua to make this story come to life. Enjoy!!!

My battleTHIS IS NOT A BEFORE AFTER PICTURE, ITS MY BATTLE WITH ANOREXIAMy battle2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you go around and start accusing people of being anorexic as a joke, you don't know who you can hurt. Not only skinny people are anorexic...over-weight people can be too. Being skinny doesn't mean being anorexic either, you can be naturally skinny and eat a lot. You can be skinny without having a mental disorder.....because this is what anorexia is: a mental disorder, and a pretty painful one. In 2013, I'm now at a normal weight. For some people I'm not skinny enough, and for some others, it's too skinny. People are never happy with the way you look. So this is why YOU have to be happy with what you are. I'm still fighting, bu I'm never gonna abandon that battle. My dreams are too important, I've been working all my life for this. So before telling someone ''someone give her a burger'' or ''you're fat blob''.....think about it twice, you don't know all the damage you can cause. Stay strong, stay happy and fight!

Wonder Woman Reborn
Supers V Wonder by JoshJ81
The collective fan community sigh of relief that a female director has been chosen to bring the Amazonian Goddess to life on the big screen has been echoing across the web ever since Monday’s announcement that Michelle McClaren had won that coveted crown. Here at DA HQ, we can’t help but imagine what Joss Whedon might have done with the character.
Pray no one involved in the Catwoman movie gets close to it.
The Traditional Through a Cracked PrismCreating art for those who feel a real resonance with traditional anchoring fairy tales, ~cidaq also draws in those who enjoy darker tales of mystery and films noir.

cidaq’s paintings are unique and instantly identifiable as hers —
Even though at first glance one might think them antique illustrations preserved from century-old

My Two cents on Portfolio ReviewsYou know, I see quite a bit of portfolio on a regular basis, and even more so when I go to comic con and CTN.My Two cents on Portfolio Reviews2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This time around was the same thing, I saw quite a few portfolios. Some good ones and some that miss the mark.
There were a few in particular that caught my eye.. a few extremely good ones, and a few that just didn't work, and I wanted to try and share my opinions about portfolios in general.
This is just my point of view, based on MY experience and definitely not a definitely law, rule, or "must do". Just what I noticed in many student's and young professional's portfolios.
The first thing that strikes me is how similar portfolios can be from one student to another..I can almost always tell when one student is from Art Center, San Jose State, Otis, Sheridan or any other major school. It's a good thing and a bad thing. Mainly a bad thing though
Just a few personal thoughts on portfolios since I just came back from comic con and saw a ton over there.

"DO YOU REALLY WANT TO BE A SUCCESSFUL ARTIST?
Or a successful WORKING PROFESSIONAL?
Believe it or not there is a difference. I'm not usually a soapbox type guy, I don't like instructing people, and I think I'm a terrible teacher. But hey, it's Friday and I'm in a strange mood. So here goes:
I've noticed that a good number of my fans happen to be aspiring artists themselves. This is for all you guys. I get asked constantly: "Where should I go to school?" "What classes should I take?" "What should I study for anatomy?" "What pencils and paper do you use?" "Should I be working digitally now instead of traditionally?" "How do I fix my poses? Learn composition? Perspective?" "When

'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblin
Do you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?
If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong. Before exaggerating human proportions and begin to have your own style, you first have to know the basics.
This little guide is the result of an accurate research and 5 years of high school of art, and it's created for all those who want to learn something new or just make a useful review.
For those who have already studied art, my suggestion is to go to step 6 or trying to repeat all steps in Digital format.
First of all, if you want to learn faster you should draw using traditi

So no Podcast this week. Instead - I've opted to post a new Mako Collection Comic called, "Wicked In The Woods". As many of you know I have always had a fascination with revisiting past stories/fables and putting a major spin on them. This one is no exception. I've had the idea for this story going back all the way to the 1980's. Always loved the idea of taking LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD and turning it on it's head. For those who like both a TG and Animal TF - you'll like this one. Special thanks to JC Grande who helped make this story come to life. Hope everyone is well - and hope to have the next Podcast up next Sunday. CHEERS!!!
